New River Hull footbridge 'may open in April'
HULL: A long-awaited £7m footbridge over the River Hull meant to open last year is now set to open next month after more delays.
Councillor Martin Mancey, portfolio holder for transport at Hull City Council, said: "There have been anticipated opening dates in the past which have come and gone and we can only keep our fingers crossed that this time it will be opened – but until such time I can't say I am 100 per cent confident."
The crossing will link the east bank of the river to the Old Town at Scale Lane.
It works like a flipper on a pinball machine, swiveling on a turnable mechanism on the west bank of the river, and is designed to carry up to 750 people every time it opens to let vessels use the river.
